Today, and for the last couple of years, Bellingham’s Bayview Cemetery has been more than a resting place for the deceased; or as the Oxford English Dictionary states “a large public park or ground laid out expressly for the interment of the dead.”
To Casey it’s always been much more than that, it’s been peace of mind. This 50-acre tract designed not only for our community’s dearly departed, has served as a place that Case could expect to rehab in tranquil seclusion, secure that an intimidating confrontation by other canines would be unlikely.
As anyone can see, it's worked wonders on our guy’s psyche. Today, with late afternoon sunshine casting an autumn intensity on deciduous survivors – sheddings of red and common oaks, Bigleaf and Japanese maples, spruce and so many more – a respectful excursion through these healing grounds is always rejuvenating, for both of us.
